Hunger Awareness Week

On March 31, students volunteered in shelters and food banks across the city to learn about emergency food in Calgary. This initiative was part of a day of service organized by the U of C’s second annual Hunger Awareness Week. Above, volunteers prepare sandwiches for Spread the Love’s sandwich-making event. Hunger week is a partnership by the Students’ Union, Campus Food Bank, and the Centre for Community-Engaged Learning and Meal Exchange Calgary. Spread the Love is a non-profit organization that provides sandwiches for homeless people. The week aims to raise awareness relating to food security. Still to look forward to this week is an event on urban gardening and an interactive session with tips on how to make easy, nutritious recipes. For more information on Hunger Week events visit
